Mali Harrell, Glass Sculpture, exhibiting at 151 Locust Street
A native of the Georgia coast, Harrell began dancing at an early age then switched to manipulating movement as a video editor, which has been her profession for many years. She also is an avid practitioner of Tai Chi and Kung Fu. Her other medium of artistic expression is blowing hot glass, fusing and slumping. She has studied with Tadashi Torii of Duckbill Studios since 2003, and has attended classes in all aspects of glass art. Her varied interests are evident in her works, synthesizing her personal experiences in Eastern philosophy and martial arts as well as a lifelong love of the sea and the earth.
